Nigeria's updated NDC commits to reducing emissions by 47% by 2030 against BAU projections, with an updated baseline from 2018. In the updated NDC, Nigeria has added waste and water, as well as short-lived climate pollutants, broadening the scope and coverage of the country's climate commitments. Nigeria is also looking beyond 2030 through developing a vision of long term low emission development in order to achieve net-zero emissions by 2060. Throughout the revision process, the NDC Partnership supported Nigeria through the Climate Action Enhancement Package, with partner support from: UNDP, UK, African Development Bank, UN Environment, 2050 Pathways, Islamic Development Bank, Germany (GIZ), International Renewable Energy Agency and local consultants supported by the NDC Partnership. The Partnership is also supporting climate finance activities and a green recovery process to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Nigeria is developing an NDC implementation plan with support from the NDC Partnership and seeking to support sub-national governments in grounding the NDC at the state level, as well as preparing projects for implementation through strengthening access to climate finance and creating new investment partnerships with the international community.
